Claim of US Patent No. 10,512,064

1. A method of allocating wireless communication link resources in a control channel, comprising:receiving, from a wireless device, control information in a control channel of an uplink portion of a wireless communication link between the wireless device and an access node;
determining a first interference level in the uplink portion;
identifying a first traffic class of data in a first portion of the uplink portion that carries bearer data;
dynamically selecting adjusted resource blocks for channel control information in a second portion of the uplink portion that carries non-bearer data based on the identified first traffic class and the determined first interference level when the identified first traffic class meets a first traffic class criteria, wherein the first interference level is determined for the second portion of the uplink portion, and the adjusted resource blocks are a distance away from an edge of a subframe comprising the uplink portion, the distance varying depending on the adjusted resource blocks selected for the second portion that carries non-bearer data;
sending to the wireless device an allocation of the adjusted resource blocks in the second portion of the uplink portion;
receiving, from the wireless device, control channel information in the uplink portion in the adjusted resource blocks;
determining at a second time a second interference level in the uplink portion of the wireless communication link;
identifying at the second time a second traffic class of data in a third portion of the uplink portion;
dynamically selecting adjusted second resource blocks in a fourth portion of the uplink portion based on the identified second traffic class and the determined second interference level when the identified second traffic class meets a second traffic class criteria, wherein the second interference level is determined for the fourth portion of the uplink portion;
sending to the wireless device a second allocation of the adjusted second resource blocks; and
receiving, from the wireless device, control channel information in the uplink portion in the adjusted second resource blocks.
